The Salisbury Sudans Link welcomes South Sudan ambassador to conference

The importance of the Mothers Union (MU) featured time and time again as speakers at the Sudans Day Conference laid out their hopes and fears for the future of Sudan and South Sudan.
The women of the MU are very active in South Sudan, supporting family life across the country, which is among the poorest and least developed in the world.
The stall at St Francis Church on Saturday, 18th March celebrated the longstanding partnership between the diocese and the Sudans – The Salisbury Sudans Link.
Members and friends of the MU across Wiltshire and Dorset have been showing solidarity with their sisters across the Sudans for decades by making clerical stoles for newly ordained priests there.
A priest in the UK will assemble a set of stoles in different colours to represent the different seasons of the church’s year. Stoles made here to be sent to Sudan often involve more than one liturgical colour because it may be the only one that the priest owns.
The MU office in Salisbury is always pleased to receive gifts of fabric, braids and threads in liturgical colours (green, red, violet, gold and white) to be made into stoles.
Cash gifts are also invited to purchase materials and interlining.
